Let me state that I just love Etsy! The site is easy to use, not too expensive (that's if you don't relist items constantly), and has a pretty big following. I had 22 items up for sale for almost 2 months and made 1 sale in 4 months. I've done all the marketing of my shop I can do but to no avail.
Many people now think of E-bay as a flea market atmosphere. I can see why they would feel that way. But lately I have had much more success on E-bay than on Etsy.
Over the weekend I sold three cards that I had listed on E-bay. The previous week I sold 2 cards that I had listed in my Etsy shop for over 6 months. I didn't make a huge amount of money with these sales on E-bay but those same three cards sat in my Etsy store for a month and though I got alot of views, no buyers!
I'm trying hard with both venues to sell my craft and make some money. I set reasonable prices for handmade goods, offer the lowest shipping I can, all to make a few dollars. I am going to keep plugging along, building up sales (hopefully), to get my handmade goods out there.
